CHICKEN nugget fan Stacey Irvine has been warned they are KILLING her — because the 17-year-old has eaten practically nothing else since the age of TWO.
Horrified doctors learned of the teenager’s chronic 15-year addiction after she collapsed and was rushed to hospital struggling to breathe.
Factory worker Stacey, who has never touched greens or fruit, was found to have anaemia and swollen veins in her tongue.
Yesterday she was recovering at home after being put on an urgent course of vitamins — which started in hospital with injections. But despite medics begging her to change her diet she STILL cannot get enough of chicken nuggets.
Stacey, of Castle Vale, Birmingham, said: “I am starting to realise this is really bad for me.
“McDonald’s chicken nuggets are my favourite. I share 20 with my boyfriend with chips.
“But I also like KFC and supermarket brands. My main meal is always chicken nuggets every day.”
Mum Evonne, 39, is battling to get her seen by a specialist.
She said: “I’m at my wit’s end. I’m praying she can be helped before it’s too late.
“It breaks my heart to see her eating those damned nuggets.
